How apt your title is - given the absolute futility of WWI. Except for the fact that these young men deserve to be remembered, the image only serves to make me sad that we have learned so little in nearly 100 years. Beautiful work. F/V

Thanks for your thoughtful comment Lianne :)

Futility is a perfect title. For those who do not learn from history are domed to repeat it. The generals of World War I could have learned from Robert E Lee's experience of 1864 (especially the siege of Petersburg). They failed to do so and committed their armies to a massive slaughter. It is good that the people in Europe remember the history of the 20th century and are living in peace.

So true Chris. Thanks for your comments :)
